Discover how you can rediscover and reconnect with the wisdom of your heart and live your true purpose through heart based living.
“Practice Love until you remember that you are Love”
– Swami Sai Premananda
In many of my posts in my Facebook group ‘Chakra Soul Sisters’, I mention following the heart as the foundation to heart-based living. I received a reply on one of my posts that said “I can’t follow my heart because I don’t feel it anymore”. This really upset me to think that she could feel and think in this way and my heart went out to her. I resonated with her words and remembered a time when I had felt the very same way, I believe it is the same for all of us at some time or another in our lives.
I realised the responsibility when posting emotive material as it touches people in ways that we can’t always fully realise. So I decided that I would find a way to guide those that feel this way, to re-connect with their heart centre.
What is Heart Based Living?
Often it is simpler to explain what something is not in order to understand what it is. When we disconnect from our heart centre (chakra) we isolate ourselves and feel loneliness. We lose trust in ourselves and particularly in other people and the world around us. We hold on to past pain that takes us away from the gift of the Now, this present moment. We can become judgmental and critical of others as we try to justify our pain.
The foundation to feeling through the heart again is through heart-based living. When your thoughts, feelings and actions are coming from the intention of love, love will be the vibration of energy that flows through your entire being. When you become Love your heart chakra opens, to not only give more, but also to be able to receive. With this form of living practice the path is found back to the feelings of the heart, there is a re-connection to the hearts wisdom and a trust and courage to follow the messages that come from this place of peace, love and harmony.
Heart-based living is a conscious choice of how you wish to set your intention for each day of your entire life.
“May your choices reflect your hopes and not your fears”
~ Nelson Mandela
Heart Based Living The 7 Inspirations
The following principles are the ways to invite and share more love in your life. In this way you will reconnect with your heart energy and then be able to follow the wisdom of your heart. To embody: affection, compassion, contentment, forgiveness, gratitude, kindness and inner peace will be your greatest contribution to your spirit and to the world. Heart-based living is your true purpose of this lifetime.
Affection – We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection. ~ Dalai Lama
Compassion – “One love, one heart, one destiny.” ~ Bob Marley
Contentment – When you are discontent, you always want more, more, more. Your desire can never be satisfied. But when you practice contentment, you can say to yourself, ‘Oh yes – I already have everything that I really need.’ ~ Dalai Lama
Forgiveness – We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
Gratitude – As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~ John F. Kennedy
Kindness – If you have the chance to be exposed to a loving, understanding environment where the seed of compassion, loving kindness, can be watered every day, then you become a more loving person. ~ Nhat Hanh
Inner Peace – You do indeed have a past, but not now! And, yes, you have a future, but not now! You can consume your now with thoughts of ‘then’ and ‘maybe,’ but that will keep you from the inner peace you could experience. ~ Wayne Dyer
